Make it Rain

Robert and I exchanged gifts early Christmas morning before the cousins came over. We got Hunter one gift, knowing he would be getting plenty from friends and family. Happy rain-sticking little guy!

Christmas 2013

What a fun Christmas! We spent Christmas Eve with Robert's side of the family and Christmas Day with mine. It was nice to see everyone and spend time with family. Hunter is too little to understand what Santa is, but as parents it was still fun to watch him experience his first Christmas! Between the gifts and tissue paper, I think he liked the tissue paper the best. This post is pretty picture-heavy, but I wanted to make sure Hunter's "first" was well documented.

Thank you to both of our families for hosting us!

Hunter's Baptism

Hunter was baptized on Sunday, November 24th at St. Mary's Episcopal church. It was a special day with our families and Hunter did great. He only fussed when Father Leslie put water on his head and shortly afterwards when we were passing him around. Thank you Oma and Opa for hosting a beautiful lunch at La La Grille!  

Santa 2013

On Thursday my company was having its annual holiday party during the day, so I decided to skip out and go see Santa with Robert and Hunter instead. It was so fun! 
The Santa at Stanford looks like the real deal and he is the nicest! He took his time and made us feel so special - there's a reason he is famous around these parts. Hunter didn't seem to care about Santa, but we are happy we snapped some cute photos since next year he will be a lot bigger.

Merry Christmas from the Andersen's! Last year Hunter made his ElfYourself debut in utero, but this year he was able to have some real face time.

Rollin', rollin', rollin'

Hunter has rolled here and there for a couple of months, but as of yesterday (12/7) he seems to roll every time we put him down! As soon as he hit four months he seems to be a different baby - so talkative, smiley, and eager to get around.He is constantly making us laugh with his parrot-like squawking and need to stand all the time.

These guys...

Love these two - having all the fun while I am back at work!

So Polite

Four Months!

Happy four months old, Hunter! He is officially giggling, which is hilarious and emotional to watch. We love our chubby guy, especially when he is happy and laughing. 
I will update his stats after his four month appointment on Wednesday, but here are some other updates:

Height: 26 1/2 inches
Weight: 15lbs 13oz
He is in the 50th percentile for weight, height, and head circumference which is shocking to me. I think his cheeks make him look bigger than he really is :)
Likes: mirrors, standing, giggling, being naked, mornings, babbling, his car seat
Dislikes: hunger, sitting in one place for too long
In other news, I am going back to work tomorrow. While I am excited to get back into the office, leaving Hunter is bitter sweet. We've had fun together the last four months and tomorrow will be the longest I have ever been away from him. Maybe it will be more relaxing to be in the office?! Who knows. 

Thanksgiving 2013

Thank you to our families for hosting us for Thanksgiving. It was fun to have Hunter along for the ride this year!
